In the event of severe weather it is advisable to call ahead. The Registry of Deeds follows the State Court schedule of holiday closures.

Our records are available in traditional bound volumes and can be viewed on our computer system. Our indexes are compiled using a true grantor index (the person giving the deed, mortgage etc) and grantee index (the person receiving a deed, discharge of mortgage etc).

  • All documents brought to us for recording must be the original with original signatures and acknowledgments.
  • Our records are indexed alphabetically in chronological order by date of their recording.
